Tim Horton's is now listed as one of the best fast-food restaurants south of the border. Having put itself up against stiff and entrenched competition from global super-powers, such as Starbucks and McDonald's, Tim's has proven itself to be a formidable Canadian competitor.
Last year, Tim Horton's was ranked 22nd in the same survey, so this represents a small victory for the Canadian chain. Brand recognition is still nowhere near as strong as it is north of the border, but it is successfully using its Canadian stronghold to pour resources into the American market.
There are now over 700 Tim's locations in the United States, and another 80 to 100 Tim Horton's stores will be added in 2012.
Intelligent Investors, be sure to keep a pulse on Tim Horton's shares as they further expand in the United States. The American market is huge and has lots of opportunity.
